abstract
We describe the outcome of deep brain stimulation of the internal pallidum in a 57-year old patient with multiple system atrophy. Although the prominent dystonic features of this patient were markedly attenuated post-operatively, the outcome was to be considered unfavourable. There was a severe increase in akinesia resulting in overall decrease of mobility in limbs as well as in the face. As a result, the patient was anarthric and displayed dysphagia. A laterality effect of stimulation on oro-facial movements was demonstrated. The patient died 7 months post-operatively. This report adds to the growing consensus that multiple system atrophy patients are unsuitable candidates for deep brain stimulation.
